About this Quilt

Do you love music? Listen to the song “Little Lies” by the band I’m with Her and you’ll hear the inspiration for this quilt. The harmonies of the band’s three singers are reflected in the colorful quilt blocks, and the negative space – like a concert hall – allows for creative quilting. Designers Laura McDowell Hopper and Mitch Hopper chose warm and cool prints to harmonize on a solid background. What fabrics would you choose?
